You are Here
'82 shows can sneak up and grab you by the brainstem sometimes. This is a killer show, and with this Aud. you can close your eyes and be there.
Yes, picky heads like me will say there is some wind noise, burnt edges on upper mid range (LIG has some channel issues too), but I am hard pressed to find an Aud that puts you more at the show than this one. Up there with some of those stellar '80-'81 Auds out there. Apparently those illicit profits were good for something. Please pass me the time machine.
Another real plus is that the Stella Blue has only the slightest dip where there is a flip. Sounds all there to me at 1st listen.
I am giving 5* for the clarity of the recording and b/c it is a BAMF of a 2nd set. I'll keep board and Aud copies of this set.
Matrix with the Tetzelli board version would be quite interesting.
